. >> brit, critics suggest that for all the obama administration's talk these days about pivoting from the middle east to a new focus on asia, that what china sees is a president who desperately wants to stay out of all foreign entanglements, and therefore there is some weakness there, a vacuum that they want to fill. >> that's the thing you worry about with a range of these administration moves that this president, unlike many of his predecessors, does not see the united states as necessarily the great bulwark in the world order, and that he prefers a more passive role, leading from behind, if you will, and that that provides the temptations for regimes like the chinese, the iranians and others, that they now have more freedom of movement because the president of the united states is indisposed to take tough measures. and that, i think is kind of where we are. and there is a unity among these differing issues in differing places in the world in that they test the resolve of the obama administration which these countries and their leaders suspect is not strong. >> speaking of testing t

talking to our viewers about president obama. should he fire somebody about the rollout of the health-care website? i think people ought to and think about every major project that has sector, to the private as well as in the public sector. it is impossible to start something as big as this without problems. boeing or yout can look at microsoft. when they introduce a new operating system. windows 8, windows 6 -- there is always problems. this focusing on the first couple of months on everything work simplyt quite is losing sight of the forest through the trees. i think that the president could in the end make a decision about that -- if there was somebody who is egregious and their behavior that is one thing. if they were doing their best, i see any kind of glitch as a reason to be fired. you are going to have them. is -- it is impossible to do this perfectly. you were critical of the president's chief of staff and you andunication with others about informing you of on with the law, before it was rolled out. has that improved? guest: tremendously. part of saying it is so they weerstan

conditions. there was also some talk of a deadline by the year end. the obama administration wanted something signed by the end of the year. now we're hearing let's take our time. maybe we do not need to rush it through after all. that is probably what is going to happen. >> on iran? >> i think he is doing the same thing. we are talking about delaying actions. the administration has no interest in sanctions. i think the democrats are discussing it. it will affect the defense authorization debate. if they cannot get a deal on , and the to the senate republicans do not seem amenable , the plan b seems more likely. >> not another round of sections? congress will hold off? republicans will wait? >> republicans will try but they cannot do it without the democratic leadership doing it. interesting, there are democrats who probably would see stronger sanctions against iran. this falls on harry reid to try to figure out how to keep this from becoming a debate on the floor. they cannot control it. it could throw a wrench in the works. some democrats may have a deal less inclined to push sanctio
and if insurers don't have the right data they cannot complete the enrollment. joining us now to talk about it, susan, congressional correspondent for the washington examiner. good to see you. >> hi. >> for the first two months, one in four people who actually managed to sign up for obama care and that's not many, they didn't actually sign up for it. it strikes me as leading to utter chaos come january 1 when people try to go see their doctor and the doctor says, sorry, your insurance company has no record that you exist. >> that's right. there are some important details that came out of a press call from the center for medicare and medicaid late last week. one was -- the two numbers you just talked about, one in four people who signed up in beginning in october, that's still a big number of people that they're going to have to figure out, comb through each of those insurance policies, figure out where the mistakes are. it's going to take a long time. they already talked about it as a herculean effort. the second number is the other figure you mentioned, one in ten who are using the website no
americans there's more to obama care than the fumbled rollout, a powerful ally talked to cnn espanol. >> i don't think you can find anybody harder that went out of his way to explain the bill more than i did. >> reporter: he's smoothing over tension lingering from this. >> the president should honor the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got. >> reporter: when he publicly urged obama last month to keep his promise about his health care law. for clinton, the issue hits close to home. >> i have a lot at stake here personally for the work i've done for health care and the work i tried to support. and hillary does, too. we've been working on this health care thing for 20 years. >> reporter: president obama will be speaking at a youth summit on the affordable care act. chris, as you know, young people are key to this. they're si their signing up, is going to offset, that's the plan anyway, older americans who are more costly to care for. >> absolutely. brianna keilar at the white house this morning. >>> another situation for you to watch this morning, a winter s
, everybody talks about president obama. they are blaming president obama for this and that. he cannot do it alone. he cannot do anything by himself. thank you. guest: on your last point, that is right. there has to be a bipartisan solution to our budget problems. aspect about the budget deal seems to be developing, it would be an instance in which the democrats and republicans have agreed on something and the white house is presumably ok with. it would be something that has bipartisan support. i the food stamp question, think food stamp costs went up with the economy. thatthe economy went down, raises foodstamp expenditures because more people need the assistance. some of that is coming down. there is still a need out there. the farm bill is being debated on capitol hill and how much food stands would be cut, there is a big difference between the house plan and the senate plan. it is not clear what the cut wouuld bld be. people think there is a lot of fraud and abuse. the economy is improving. some people perceive less of a need. they are going to work something out. they are far apart.
not help the republicans' image. talking about tting food stamps. >> i think the polls are right and obama has been over that gap. the memedian house hold come was $56,000. is $5252,500. there has been a drop in median income. while the rich have watched their stocks double since the day obama came into offe. on the one hand he has a fed pumping up, inflating the pricinof housing and ststock, deliberately by prting a trillion dollars a y year of money. and on the other hand we have a drdrop, and this is unprececede, a drop in the recovery. this has been going on -- >> excuse me. can i -- >> i am going to finish first. obama comes in as if he is a bystander. if he were it would ban , interestining issue. he has beein office five years. the problem has gotten worse. now he discovers it. >> excuse me, there is another branch of government called the congress. a lot of the remedies obama has recommended have gone nowhere in the lalast coue of years. we will start there. secondly, i do not think the speech aually had all whwhole bunch of remies.s. but if you do t face this problem, if we do not
. president obama has been labeled with this word by the opponent. you all know the word i am talking about. obamacare. that's right. i said it and i am not ashamed and neither is president obama. >> harris perry said no matter how much the president accomplishes obamacare will also loom over his head. is that comparison fair in we leave that for you to decide. >> the time now is about 20 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, chaos. a fight breaking out it was so violent they had to intervene behind the shocking scene. >> if you or a loved one is expecting to go under the knife soon why the day you are scheduled for an operation could mean the different between life and death. this is the quicksilver cash back card from capital one. it's not the "fumbling around with rotating categories" card. it's not the etting blindsided by limits" card. it's the no-game-playing, no-earning-limit-having, deep-bomb-throwing, give-me-the-ball-and-i'll-take- it-to-the-house, cash back card. this is the quicksilver cash card from capital one. unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere, ev
-- verifyble. when this bill was being talked about again, back in 2009, shortly after mr. obama became our 44th president, it was estimated that there was something like 47 million people in this country, mr. speaker, who through no fault of their own except couldn't afford it didn't have health insurance. well, when you really go through those numbers and i have a book with me that i'm going to reference and i want to give proper attribution, the name of the book is "the top 10 myths of american health care: a citizen's guide." maybe it could be a patient's guide. and this is written by sali pipes -- sally pipes. and she talks about in this book, she talks about that 47 million. something like 15 million of hose 47 million make more than $50,000 a year. indeed, some make more than $75,000 a year, mr. speaker. and they've just decided that they don't want health insurance, that they will pay as they go. and there's nothing wrong with that. i don't advise it. i think everybody should at least have catastrophic coverage. but be that as it may, this is america. we have to insist on enjoying our
we talk. this is interesting. because the obama administration put a lot of pressure on prime minister netanyahu of israel he said, you, mr. prime minister, have to agree to release over 1,000 murderous thugs, including murderers who murdered an american, before the palestinians will come to the table to negotiate with you on the israeli-palestinian conflict. that was our president who put pressure on the prime minister. you've got to release thugs in order to negotiate. we would put that kind of pressure on israel and we wouldn't put that kind of pressure on iran? you see, that's why, mr. speaker, i ask the question -- did the negotiators forget which nation they were negotiating for? because it looks to me like the score is pretty clear. united states zero, iran made out on the deal. the sad thing about that final score, and let's hope it's not the final score, is that again, the hinge of history turns. and if you have an iran with a nuclear weapon, it won't be just iran. you will explode proliferation, saudi arabia will have a nuclear weapon, egypt will have a nuclear weapo
-- as things wrap up at the saban center. earlier, we heard from president obama as he talked about changes taking place across the middle east. [applause] >> hello. >> how you doing? >> i'm good. hello, everybody. >> all of your staffers said you were in a great mood this afternoon. we are doubly blessed. i would like to thank you very much for being here today, mr. president. on its 10th anniversary, is honored to have you join this conversation, and i am personally honored that you insisted that i have this conversation with you, even though i never set foot for any conversation for 10 years. thank you. i am very honored. should we start with iran? >> we should. >> ok. good. [laughter] mr. president, polls indicate israelis don't believe this nuclear deal will preclude iran from having nuclear weapons. this is an existential matter for them. what can you say to the israeli people to address their concerns? >> first, let me say to you, haim, thank you so much for the great work you have done. i think the savan -- saban forum and center have done outstanding work. it provides us a mechanis
about saving obama care. but it was really stunning to me, he talked about persistence and the connection between a president and the public and that motivating persistence. but that's different than fighting. >> about why he would continue to fight. as i say, comparing politics to rolling a boulder up the hill is a little different from the way he began his life in politics, like with popping a champagne cork. this is tough stuff. but he showed -- he showed his own motivation. he said i remember every day -- >> guys, he's been there before. i didn't have to remind him of being in that car all alone. an african-american guy heading out into the white suburbs in the rural areas of illinois where no black guy has never run for anything, certainly not won anything. he doesn't have a gps in the car. the map on the seat, passenger's seat. i've got to discover illinois so i can be elected senator. after being beaten in a south chicago race. >> also after losing -- excuse me one second -- the 2010 election. remember that. that was a tremendous blow. he sort of reassessed his p
who have gathered in the soccer stadium so there could be a moment where president obama and raul castro may shake hands, may talk, who knows. >> be interesting to watch if they shake hands. that was the big thing, the gore people wanted no physical contact or substantive communications because of the relationship between the two countries. obviously, you can get as close as we are at an event like that and we will see what happens. you watch something like that. for the former presidents to be together, you know this because you have been at big events, the opening of presidential libraries here at home, the king hussain funeral, you had a group like that. the pope john paul ii funeral, you had several presidents together. it's a security challenge, number one, then the question is how do they work amongst themselves. it's an exclusive club. we do know on this flight over, the president is in his office, george and laura bush have the medical suite which is -- >> on air force one. >> on air force one. they can recon figure it, make it more comfortable and secretary clinton is in
dolan of new york. he is one of the leading cardinals in america. he talks about why the church has turned against obama care and why the church has been outmarketed on gay marriage. >>> nbc correspondent harry smith with the story of the survivor of the boston marathon bombing. he represents the true meaning of boston strong. i'm david gregory onand this is "meet the press" on sunday, december 1st. >>> good sunday morning. a big weekend for the future of president obama's landmark health care legislation, two months to the day since the troubled launch of heal, they put out a report this morning saying they're making dramatic progress and the team is meeting with private sector velocity and effectiveness. that's how the website apparently is working. it also says the site's capacity has been expanded to handle 50,000 users at once along with improved response times and decreased error rates. but the obama administration has downplayed expectations in the past week saying the man could actually outweigh capacity, and today's report indicates there is still more work t
, illinois, democrat line. good morning. toler: i wanted to talk about president obama when he build out all the costs in detroit. if he agreed to bail them out, his agreement should have been ,hat they bring every not, old and higher back to america so america's workers can make an american car. that would have been my terms on that. i think the president went wrong on that one. i think he should have had a few more issues with the car people. >> let me direct your attention to the front page story of the detroit free press the the newspaper asking detroit residents about their concerns or frustrations, fears, promise, or hope to -- or hope. the caller has a point. this was part of the president's reelection campaign, general motors is live -- is alive. that does not mean detroit is alive and -- is alive. a lot of the automobile jobs in the united states has moved to some of them -- has moved. some of them are in tennessee. they are american name -- american cars with japanese plates. -- anan industry interesting question what you call an american made car. a toyota made in tennessee and am
unhappy for health options care under obama care. >> i am not surprised the majority leader wants to talk about health care. much of that legislation he is all the times the republican party has tried to repeal health care. clear thisake it will is a very positive though for the american people. the bill to which the gentle man refers covered less than 3 million people of the 30 million to 40 million people who have no insurance. tens of millions of people i predict by the middle of next going to be having coverage and health care insurance because we passed this bill. he is right. the rollout is terrible. in president is disappointed that. it is being worked on. he doesn't recall the rollout of the subscription drug hill. -- bill. medicaret recall that had a tough rollout for a couple years. i am not saying they don't believe it. there are people who say we ought to not have medicare. the fact of the matter is the health-care bill is going to work, but it is interesting that when you ask a specific question , it passed in a bipartisan fashion overwhelmingly. health carethe good bill. tha
will be significant. >> when it comes to president obama's presence on the international stage, we know he's talking about this potential for comprehensive agreement with iran yesterday. he said it's 50/50 or, frankly, it could be worse. his approval numbers very low here. when it comes to the international stage, how is his capital right now? >> i don't think it's exceedingly high. i think a lot of america's allies, particularly in the middle east from israel to some of the gulf countries think america has lost its nerve in some regard, particularly when it comes to confronting iran. so i think there is some difficulty with ourbili because our economic standing has some impact as well. it doesn't diminish america's overall power in the world and america's real influence in the world. that is still very, very strong, even if some people have doubts about president obama. >> how much of a focus is there for president obama in terms of international, seg tear hagel making his way to afghanistan. obviously something needs to be achieved there. >> it's so difficult. i think as you look toward next year,
with honey in it. rikola. that's all i've got. >> you're going to be a bumblebee. >> let's talk about the polls. i get it. some of the polls from harvard university. do you disapprove or approve of his job performance? 54% disapprove. do you approve of obama care? 57% disapprove. are you likely to enroll in obama care? 45% unlikely. 22% likely. is that what this is about, chris? >> it is. one of my favorites in that harvard university and student politics poll is where 47% say they would recall the president from office if they could. they would take him out of his job today if they could. by the time we got to the obama care crash, we had six months of the worst beginning of a presidential second term since richard nixon. it was bad. this presidency was off on the wrong track. it was off on the wrong track on the nsa which was a massive breach of trust. this much spying was a massive breach of trust with the voters. young v those issues. they live online, on the internet, on their devices. the president was snooping. he deceived them about that. that breach of trust might have been f
have president obama but pope francis talk about is a living wage. set the minimum wage at a level that people can survive on. you have states already emulating what a lot of these workers are talking about. seattle recently raised their minimum wage to $15 an hour. california $10 an hour. i think people are understanding because frankly those strains end up getting pushed to the states. states have to subsidize those same people. >> very quickly, wouldn't a business get a lot out of the henry ford model? unilaterally saying we're going to pay more than market price for our employees and charge you more and wouldn't that be like a huge pr for a business? >> if a business could do that, if a business could do that they would have done it already. they wouldn't need the federal government telling them to do that. it's instrubtive the examples we're hearing, fast food strikes, airport in seatle, these are union-backed campaigns to try to create a discussion, try to demonize large companies but at the end of the day all they're doing is restricting opportunities for sort of the people
. >> not too early to be talking about this is what the obama website looks like today. this is brand-new. see plans before i apply. what's different is -- they were afraid to put this out in the beginning because they thought sticker shock would scare people away but now you can click on that. what's interesting is the sticker shock is going to overwhelm people. i was reading today if you are 35 years old, a couple living in el paso, texas, you get the blue cross-blue shield plan, the premium is less than $300 a month but the deductible is $12,000 a year. this is not what we were promised. >> not at all. also on the website, i saw was they added a q. and a. area where it says can i keep my own doctor because everyone has been asking. it answers depending on the plan you choose and the marketplace, you may -- not you can -- you may be able to keep your own doctor, certainly raising eyebrows and suspicions when it comes to remembering and recalling the president's promise that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctors. chris wallace, ezekiel emanual behind it al
obama or congressman like grayson. what were the difference forces at play that affected us not going in? and if you could talk about what happened this morning in iran as well. >> so, first of all, on the syria issue, the united states is already intervening in syria. the cia is supporting groups with weapons and strategic satellite imagery to enable them to engage with forces. the russians are involved. the iranians are involved. the united states is engaged already. but your question is interesting. i think what happened was president obama made this statement that for him a red line was the use of chemical weapons. and when it came out they used chemical weapons. obama is being asked by the press and al llies what are you going to do? and they were looking at a strike with maybe drones and tomahawks that would send a m s message and didn't intend for an exte extended air fair. and the obama was caught off guard on the opposition. and people on the left are fed wind up with the wars. the whitehouse miscalculated the opposition >> what is the companion to this? >> i was writing the bo
and the government in his and obama is doing that and obamacare is terrible. so those were the guys i wanted to talk to because they were the ones with the ideas, the leaflets. i said, is this your stuff? they said, yes, your you? i said, i'm in academic imaging academic-- i'm an doing research. i actually study men who believe this stuff. , asking questions, looked at me suspiciously. i said, here's what i am. i don't get it. here's my job. i want to understand how you see the world. i want to understand that your worldview. look, you will not convince me and i will not convince you. that is off the table. what is on the table as i want to understand why you think the way you do. >> downward mobility, racial and gender equality. the fears, anxiety, and rage of angry white men. sunday night at 9:00. part of booktv this week and on c-span 2. bring public affairs events from washington directly to you for putting you in the room at congressional hearings, white house events, briefings and conferences and offering complete gavel-to-gavel coverage of the u.s. house all as a public service of private ind
june 30th, tom donyell -- mr. obama's national security advisor. he is now a distinguished fellow at the council on foreign relations. he joins me to talk about recent developments and the issues he was deeply involved in at the white house from iran to winding down the war in afghanistan to mitigating tensions between china and japan. welcome back to the show. >> great to see you. >> let's 23irs talk about iran, you were deeply involved in this whole policy, it appears that what we're saying is we need iran to essentially shut downing parts of its nuclear program so that it cannot have the kind of breakout capacity that -- he says we are not going to dismantle a single thing, we're willing to freeze, we're willing to have everything monitored, but no dismantling, how do you bridge those two positions? >> the reason we're here is the enormous pressure that was put on -- president rowhani took a max mallist stand. they're going to have to assure the international community in very concrete, verifiable and solid ways that they're not working on a nuclear weapon. >> that means rollin
. mandela was one of bush's harshest critics when it came to iraq. when we talked to bush about the ailing mandela earlier this year, there were no hard feelings. >> he promoted freedom. he was a really great leader. he was smart and capable. and made his mark. >> reporter: obama only met mandela once. ever so briefly as a junior senator. but his connection may be the most profound. it was mandela, he says, who awakened him to the wider world. inspiring him to political activism. >> he gave me a sense of what human beings can do when guided by their hopes, not by their fears. >> reporter: in other words, there night not be a president obama if not for nelson mandela. for "this week." jonathan karl, abc news, washington. >>> and we're lucky now to be joined by four individuals who had unique working relationships with nelson mandela. bill keller. dr. gay mcdougall, who campaigned for his release from prison. stan greenberg, his pollster and strategist. and ambassador jendayi frazer. thanks to all of you for being here. bill, let me begin with you. we ended the piece with the relationship be
. that day was his last as mr. obama's national security adviser. he's now a distinguished fellow at the council on federal relations. he joins me now to talk about iran to winding down the war in afghanistan to mitigating tensions between china and japan. >> thank you, fareed. >> you were deeply involved in the whole policy with iran. it seems we're at two positions that cannot be bridged. it appears that what we are saying is we need iran to essentially shut down parts of its program to ensure it cannot have a kind of breakout capacity that would allow it to the weaponize its program. the president says we are not going to dismantle a single thing. we're willing to freeze, have everything monitored, but no dismantling. how do you bridge those two positions? >> well, the reason we're here, of course, is because of the tremendous pressure that's been put on the iranian economy through the u.s.-led sanctions effort. president rouhani took a stand in the article you referenced, but there's going to have to be roll back of the program. they will have to ensure the international commu

? we always talk about israel does, israel back. they would not even do president obama. he can't dance and a or forget the coalition. they should have been the first one with her coalition. >> guest: first thing, christian, what is real we didn't want to miss her coalition because there's some problems between israel and palestine and would make things more complex and we would have been able to get a lot of our partners and allies that we got in iraq and afghanistan. i think israel understands that. at the same time, israel helped us to the wars in iraq and afghanistan with intelligence and things like that. putting them in the coalition and have been israeli boots on the ground in these countries, would have had more gesture meant that benefit. number two, president bush didn't kill any soldiers, marines or sailors. radical islamic terrorist state. we are to iraq for the right reasons and we know now that aside has used these chemical weapons that iraq had, the iraqi chemical weapons went straight to syria and assad has had them since. i think we went there for the right reasons. we
? how many israeli soldiers died when we were over there -- you are over there fighting in iraq? we talk about israel this, israel that. not join our coalition. you're making fun of president obama, he cannot have anybody follow or get in the coalition. israel should have been the first ones with the coalition. we do noth israel, want them in our coalition. there are some problems between israel and palestine. it would make things more complex and we would not have been able to get a lot of our partners and allies that we got in iraq and afghanistan if israel had been part of that. they understand that. israel helped us with intelligence and other things. putting them in the coalition and having is really big on the ground in these countries -- putting them in this coalition and having israeli boots on the ground would have done more harm in these countries. president bush did not kill any soldiers, islamic terrorists did. we went to iraq for the right reasons. assad has usedt these chemical weapons that iraq had. they went straight to syria, ass ad has had been sent. we went in there fo
and if you thing it was political against obama or congressman like grayson. what were the difference forces at play that affected us not going in? and if you could talk about what happened this morning in iran as well. >> so, first of all, on the syria issue, the united states is already intervening in syria. the cia is supporting groups with weapons and strategic satellite imagery to enable them to engage with forces. the russians are involved. the iranians are involved. the united states is engaged already. but your question is interesting. i think what happened was president obama made this statement that for him a red line was the use of chemical weapons. and when it came out they used chemical weapons. obama is being asked by the press and al llies what are you going to do? and they were looking at a strike with maybe drones and tomahawks that would send a m s message and didn't intend for an exte extended air fair. and the obama was caught off guard on the opposition. and people on the left are fed wind up with the wars. the whitehouse miscalculated the opposition >> what is the comp
the curriculum but now is being attacked as if barack obama himself has come up with this common core. having said that, i think that i'll use the numbers, you know, by survey in connecticut. 72% of teachers in the affected areas -- so we're talking about math, science, we're talking about literacy -- embrace it. 72%. only 2 or 3 -- you know, depending on how the question is asked, only 2 or 3% think that it will lead to lower or worse result. and the other bunch just not taking a position. so when you have that kind of embracing of that concept and when teachers and administrators have had enough time to look at what's, what people want to emphasize, then i think they're moving in the right direction. we're certainly seeing that in connecticut. no large scale movement to delay or abandon common core. i think there's a recognition that we need to hold ourselves accountable for success. >> excuse me. as you think about the common core, what are the couple of key strengths that you think it offers? or is there anything in particular about the implementation that you're nervous about? >> um, key
